Green consciousness and sustainability has awakened in us and is increasingly finding its way through consumerism, economies and politics.
Cogs Hong Kong is working together with digital community HK Techneeks to bring awareness to one of the most talked-about topics in our society, ‘Sustainability’.
Zero waste grocery stores, eco-conscious fashion labels and websites promoting the green lifestyle have been sprouting in Hong Kong over the last 2 years. This isn’t entirely new to the city but for once the choice to take up the change is being steered by smaller or independent businesses and consumers themselves (you and me).
You don’t have to be in a CSR role or a non-profit organisation to make a positive impact for the good of the environment. Anyone can make change happen.
Join our panel’s moderator, Vince Siu, co-founder and co-curator of SUSTAINHK and member of World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Hong Kong will play host to a group of distinguished and passionate business professionals across industries whose life and work revolve around sustainability and the environment.
- Connect with those at the forefront of the sustainability effort and others who are as passionate about the topic as you are
- Learn how they practise sustainability in their workplaces
- Pick up tips from these professionals on how they overcame obstacles (e.g. legal, management buy-ins, support from colleagues, time and resources)
- Understand how being green can augment their businesses and deliver value to all aspects of their companies
